The Malkov RK-11 SMG is one of two submachine guns featured in Battlefield 2142 (the other being the EU Army Turcotte Rapid SMG) and is used by the Pan-Asian Coalition Army. It is effective in confined environments and uses a high fire rate to ensure multiple hits.
It has a high rate of fire, manageable recoil, and high damage in close quarters where it is best used. It has identical stats to the Turcotte Rapid SMG (other than the RK having a slightly lower maximum damage), presumably for balance purposes.
At a medium-long range, the Malkov is extremely ineffective, as the inaccuracy and recoil of the weapon will result in few shots hitting the target. Like its counterpart, the Turcotte, the Malkov is used best for personal defense instead of attacking enemies.
When put up against most other firearms in the game, the Malkov will almost always lose out. However, when at a close range, it can be much more effective, particularly when hip firing. The Malkov is often used by Engineers as a precautionary weapon whilst they get into a position where they can engage and destroy enemy vehicles, as well as set up any mines and similar equipment.
- The Malkov bears many resemblances to the real life weapon the FN P90, seen in the way it is reloaded, the position and design of the magazine, as well as the design of the weapon itself. However, there is no evidence to prove that it is a descendant of the P90. Its name suggests it is of Russian manufacture, and it being a PAC issue weapon supports this.
